Ever wanted to give your take on USC Athletics?

Always wanted to conjure up a written argument as to why USC should have kept Coach Orgeron? Well, we would love to give informed fans that opportunity.

Stephen Dunn

Do you have a knack for writing, presenting an argument or writing in detail about current events, based on dynamic flow of information? Are you a college student who is looking for additional writing experience and mentorship to lay the foundation for a career in sports journalism?

Do you want to put your spin on the USC Football world, along with many of the up-and-coming national title contenders on campus as we rapidly approach the schools historic 100th team national championship?

If any of those questions caught your eye, then we'd love to have you write for Conquest Chronicles. We'd like our writers to be able to commit to publishing at least 1-2 articles a week on USC topics of their choosing. Trust us when we say this, publishing one or two posts will snowball into three, four, five. Who knows really, its all about having fun.

Depending on your work, dedication and talent, there are always opportunities for talented writers with high enthusiasm and overall creativeness. In particular, we'd love to hear from those that like writing about the recruiting machine, USC football, and USC baseball/basketball (P.S. we love all the non-revenue sports as well).

For those who feel like they are up to the task, let it be known that we can help you along the way. We provide great tips on making GIF's, utilizing social media, along with some tremendous SEO skills for the site and your personal brand.

Has strong knowledge about USC, both current and historical.
Possesses strong writing skills (don't worry, we all learn along the way)

Is able to write in line with our best practices for growing an audience.
Is able to write and publish quickly while remaining accurate.
Is a self-starter who can work with minimal direction.
Possesses solid communication skills.

We look forward to having you join our family! Fight On!
